Wednesday, November 15, 2023

The Catalyst Endowment Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has awarded the Center a one-year, $68,000 grant to support a collaboration with the Connecticut Tenants Union (CTTU) to support tenant groups in developing capacity and wielding power to decrease and prevent eviction. With the goal of reaching at least 1,575 Greater Hartford tenants, the Center will provide support and technical assistance to those advocating for legislation that prevents eviction. The CTTU will identify at-risk tenants and organize them to fight for eviction protections. Efforts will include advocating for state and local legislation that prevents eviction or displacement and technical support to newly established municipal Fair Rent Commissions.
